Our New Boat

We closed a few days before Christmas.
We now have a lot more boat and a lot less money.

2007 North Pacific 52--plan is to start heading north from Anacortes, Washington-Sidney, B.C. area in April with no specific schedule or timetable.

Ken

Good for you. In my estimate that is a great, if not the best, way to go about it!

We were looking at those 52s over the past month, including that one which I believe was in Ladysmith, there are a couple up there. Getting it back to Florida is the challenge.

Thanks!

Yes, this is the one from Ladysmith-Hull #2, it is now in Anacortes where Hull #1, also for sale thru AAA YachtFinders, is located.
We did lots of negotiating, survey, sea trial on Hull # 3 last spring but never could get to an agreement.

We have been looking/shopping for over 2 years and didn't target the North Pacific but they just kept popping up, had a lot of what we were looking for and seem to be a good value and the timing was right.
